Whether starting your adventure at the New Rochelle Train Station, built in 1873, or at the site of the 1688 arrival of the French Huguenots in Hudson Park, you’re sure to find that our accommodations in New Rochelle provide the perfect home base for your explorations.
New Rochelle, or “La Nouvelle-Rochelle,” as its French founders knew it, features many historical buildings. Trinity-St. Paul’s Episcopal Church embodies a heavy Gothic-Revival influence, while the Presbyterian Church of New Rochelle, a structure with portions dating to the 1760s, benefits from additions in the Colonial-Revival style from as late as 1929. Plus, nearby Lieb’s Greenhouses is a wonderful place to spend an afternoon: Peruse the well-manicured gardens and nurseries, and don’t miss the bridge leading to the gazebo. Such beautiful locales in such close proximity explain Norman Rockwell’s frequent renderings of scenic New Rochelle.
With hotels located downtown, navigating New Rochelle’s lively food and shopping is a comparative breeze. Hotel guests in New Rochelle can choose from the likes of Peruvian, Italian, and Puerto Rican eateries for dinner, along with local favorites like the 1950s-styled Mirage Diner. Stop in at one of the city’s eclectic boutiques afterward for a unique end to the evening.
